A picture of the sleeping baby squirrel shared by the Karlsruhe Police Department.
Brave cops in Germany came to the rescue of a man being chased down a street... by a baby squirrel. The incident took place on Thursday in the city of Karlsruhe, after police officers responded to a call by a panicked man saying he was being pursued by a squirrel. According to a police report of the incident, officers arrived at the scene in a patrol car to find that the unnamed man was indeed being chased by a squirrel.
The drama ended when the baby squirrel, presumably tired from all the excitement, fell asleep abruptly.
It was a happy ending for both the pursued man and the baby squirrel - who was adopted by the Karlsruhe Police Department and named its new mascot. According to the police report, the baby squirrel was named Karl-Friedrich and is now being well looked after at an animal centre.
